Created from Italian silk taffeta, Michelle Greene’s mermaid-style wedding gown reflected both the timeless elegance of Grace Kelly and the glamour of the Hollywood red carpet. The sweetheart neckline was accented by Swarovski crystal detailing that began on the bride’s left shoulder and draped diagonally across her back. Additional crystals added texture at the hip of the ruched, form-fitting gown, which bloomed into a flared taffeta skirt that beautifully accented the bride’s figure—ideal for dancing at the Ritz Carlton in Dallas, where her reception was held.

“This dress was all about texture, lines, and folds,” designer Nardos Imam said. The olive green dresses Michelle's bridesmaids wore reflected these elements as well, and perfectly complemented the bride's gown.

Classic shape and unique detailing came together to create a bridal look fit for a modern-day princess—one who would feel equally at home dancing in Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors, or walking down the aisle of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church to say “I do” to her very own prince.
